Many of the 17,000 road injuries and 100+ deaths suffered by cyclists every year happen on the way to or from work and are caused by thoughtless or aggressive motorists.
This cracking little Microcam Helmet Cam, provides a simple, low cost and effective way to make sure that if you are unfortunate enough to become a victim of careless or aggressive drivers,
...it won`t just be your word against theirs, when you get to the Police Station!
Scary Moments on the way to work!
...every cyclist has experienced more than one hairy moment while cycling on our roads, ...which is why so many are now using a helmet camera to record every journey.
As one cyclist commented to a BBC news reporter, "it feels like some form of insurance" ...as accidents often go unwitnessed, and unlike motorists, we don`t have an insurance company backing us.
...another cyclist started wearing his HeadCam after several incidents including one where he was knocked off his bike and the most recent of which, was when a motorist drew alongside him in a narrow road and threatened to kill him!
How could you prove the accidentwasn`t your fault

The Super-Clip comes as standard with the camera and is ideal for attaching your camera to clothing, belt, etc., but if you want to attach it to your helmet or your bike frame, you may want to consider the optional "Extreme Sports Pack" (see item at bottom of page), which includes a variety of straps and extra brackets to suit almost every need.
